referencing the rumored murphy-kenny thomas swap.

i know we'd like to get jason thompson and kenny thomas' expiring contract for murphy, but it seems improbable to me. on the other hand, we also know that the kings would like to move beno udrih's really long contract (all the way up to 2013).

how about:

murphy, watson, diener for thompson, thomas, udrih

the price for getting thompson is taking on udrih's contract, who will take over the backup pg role (no doubt for many years to come thanks to his contract).

the difference of murphy's contract to udrih's is about $5m, which should still be enough to get us under the luxury tax next year.

kenny thomas can be bought out.

watson and diener are both expiring contracts, so sacto might still end up with a little cap room next year.

thoughts?
